A creation serpent of the Fiji people. Long ago a bird laid two eggs on the water. The Degei saw this as he was so huge he filled the entire sky and could see everything. He then incubated these two eggs, which hatched into man and woman. He then looked after them by giving them food such as yam, taro roots and bananas. From these two humans began the human race.
